Hello all, I'm new here and would like to ask some assistance on the problem I just had.

Yesterday I was about to watch a DVD on my notebook -ASUS UL80VT WIN7 PREMIUM- but suddenly I got a blue screen.
I tried a few times but always ended with blue screen.
It's been awhile I haven't played DVD on my notebook, so it surprised me when it happened - besides, I never had a blue screen before - ever.
I don't know what caused it, I hope you guys here could help me out.

Attached, please find my minidump and the screenshot of details of problems.

Thanks a million in advance! :)

Have you installed any applications recently which may have messed with the codecs installed on your machine? I'd make sure your gfx drivers are up to date, and install a codec pack, K-Lite for example.

Hello CORE, thank U for replying my thread.

What I remember I only updated my NVIDIA drivers a month ago... Do U think it might have caused my problem now?
U suggest me to install a codec pack?
Thanks a bunch :)

I would try reinstalling the graphics drivers first, and try installing K-Lite if you get another BSOD when trying to play back a DVD or other video.

Hi! Core...
Just after I posted my reply... I went to my device manager and saw that my display adapters had an exclamation sign. So I checked it, and it turned out that the NVidia updated I installed the other time conflicted with my original ones.

So I uninstalled those drivers, and took out my ASUS Drivers&Utility CD... and installed it from there... then Voilà... everything has come back to normal!
Phewwwhhh.... what a Relief!

I think I should've checked it before making a thread here... LOL
Thanks
